The Albert Gore Research Center at Middle Tennessee State University seeks to hire a graduate intern for the summer of 2018. The internship will help prepare the successful candidate for a career in archives. The intern will work directly with our archivist on the Bart Gordon Papers, a large congressional collection donated by the former U.S. Representative who served from 1985-2011. The intern will gain experience in the processing, arrangement, and description of paper documents, and will also have the opportunity to develop and research a digital humanities and/or public history project. Students and interns in the past have developed online exhibits, Story Maps, lesson plans, public programs, podcasts, and digital collections. The Gore Center wants to provide a meaningful work experience, so interns are encouraged to present their own ideas for projects or skills they wish to acquire.
